Infocus your community magazine – Dainfern Nature Association September 2017
Spring is here and and the DHA and Turfnet have topdressed a number of the lawns in common areas around the Estate to make sure that our gardens are looking immaculate for the summer months.
When driving the estate, residents will note that a number of areas have had new plants planted and the beautiful winter colour that is in bloom.
These spectacular shows of colour were achieved using seeds which are done at very little cost the Estate.
The golf course was hollow tined at the end of August and there are a number of reasons why hollow tining takes place on a golf course:
- Traffic on the golf course over the year causes the ground to become compacted and hardened which means drainage is less efficient and the grass’s roots are prevented from absorbing oxygen. Hollow tining allows the compacted turf to expand and air and moisture to be more easily absorbed.
